Brandon Falk

Brandon Falk is a Pwnie award winner for Vectorized Emulation, an extremely high-performance fuzzing engine leveraging AVX-512 SIMD instructions for fuzzing multiple instances of a program in parallel on a single core.

Vectorized emulation easily can handle billions of fuzz cases per second on a single server and can consume over a terabyte per second of fuzz inputs. This leads Brandon down many creative paths of custom operating systems, data structures, protocols, and emulators to generate high quality inputs, handle trillions of instructions per second of emulated execution and coverage reporting, and store all of this information in formats that can be kept in sync between multiple servers with sub-millisecond syncing and statistics reporting for real-time fuzzer monitoring.

Brandon is also known for his popular Twitch and YouTube channels where he experiments and demystifies fuzzing black magic for the masses.

Alex Radocea & Philip Olausson

Alex Radocea & Philip Olausson first met at the wargames.unix.se games and have ever since been having fun hacking CTFs as the "lollerskaters dropping from rofl copters” team and playing for “Hacking For Soju”. Professionally at longterm they have been training & advising startups to secure their technology.

Previous claims to fame include Calchands.exe — a world's first public memory corruption exploit in Virtual Reality (Steam Engine), cracking iCloud Keychain’s end-to-end encryption, decrypting LINE + Kakao encryption over the wire.

Jordan Wiens & Tom Sherman

Jordan Wiens has done: CS, NIDS, RE, VR, MGMT for .EDU, .COM and .GOV, then he was cured from acronymphilia and he co-founded Vector 35 (makers of Binary Ninja) where he is still trying to figure out how to price software and write documentation (both harder than program analysis).

Tom started his career in Biostatistics before moving to Cyber in 2019. He enjoys building scalable data analysis pipelines to support reverse engineer tools, and leveraging ideas from ML and scientific computing to expand what those tools can do.
